Dinky the T-Rex
Well, there's Dinky, the town mascot. He's a sight. You probably already saw him when you came in, but you can go up inside, too.”— Jeannie May Crawford
Originally Dinky was a pre-War "tourist trap" in the tourist-rich Las Vegas. Dinky the T-Rex is Novac's defensive stronghold; Manny Vargas and Craig Boone are two snipers that alternate shifts inside of Dinky's mouth. The New California Republic once used this motel to snipe Caesar's Legion soldiers via Dinky the Dinosaur's mouth.
The lot can be accessed from the left or right of the fence that rests in front of Dinky. Inside is the Dino Bite gift shop. A set of stairs can be climbed to access his mouth. There is also a room behind the counter containing many rocket souvenirs and the unique weapon, That Gun. The motel itself is located behind Dinky.
- Cass refers to Dinky as a giant gecko. The first time you arrive in Novac with her, she will say that she thought Dinky to be real the first time she saw it.
- If you climb up Dinky's back and then along its arms, it is possible to talk to the sniper on duty in its mouth.
Dinky the T-Rex appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
